      This Week at KOA: Warriors X Oaklandish, Our Joe + Kamala Picks, Flax Art, and more

      Helloooo Oakland! We’re still on a bit of a high from yesterday’s inauguration. It’s not every day your hometown gal gets elected to be Vice President of the United States, areweright?? We look forward to seeing what Madam V.P. has up her sleeve for small biz around the country.

      As you know, we took a crazy number of your orders over the holidays, but we want to make it easy for you to support local all year long. To that end, we’ll be adding lots of shops to the site in 2021 so you can choose Oakland over Amazon whenever you’re doing your online shopping.

      Speaking of new shops to the site, give a warm welcome to Happy Trails Home – a Rockridge novelty shop with fun pop culture giftables packed floor to ceiling – from modern to retro-inspired. Be sure to check them out and keep your money in the community!

      THE OAKLANDISH X WARRIORS COLLECTION

      Oakland Forever. Shop the Oaklandish X Warriors limited-edition collab collection inspired by the ‘We Believe’ era on Keep Oakland Alive and show your love for the team!

      10% of all proceeds will be donated to Roots Community Health Center and their work to serve those disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 throughout Oakland, focused on East Oakland. Shop the Collection

      INAUGURAL FUN: OUR JOE + KAMALA PICKS

      From Momala to Senator of California to Madam V.P., Kamala Harris is used to kicking ass and taking names – and now she’s rung in a new chapter for our country (and hopefully Oakland small businesses) as well. Your local shops have got lots of Joe + Kamala goodies in stock, check out these finds from Adventure Toys, Bella Vita, and Children’s Fairyland and commemorate the occasion properly. Shop the Collection

      GET TO KNOW: FLAX ART

      Meet Howard, the owner of Flax Art!

      Howard is actually the grandson of Herman Flax, who opened the legendary art supply store in 1938 (!). Three generations later, Howard runs the family business, making a point to carry the same abundant selection of product and employing as many local artists and musicians as possible. Flax Art was a big part of the SF art scene for 80 years, and moved to Oakland a few years ago, debuting a huge Heather Day mural at its headquarters.

      Find their entire inventory of every art supply imaginable – from frames and watercolors to puzzles and Cavallini papers on our site. Shop Flax Art.

      And be sure to watch this video to hear the nice things Howard has to say about us (we're blushing).
